“Budget means budget!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Our stay was in the winter, for two nights. When we arrived the room was ice cold and smelled funny. We had to turn the heat on and wait for the room to heat up. The shampoo bottle was used. Only two sets of towels and no bath mat. The stationary folder only had two envelopes (?). The room does have a hair dryer, coffee maker, small microwave, small fridge, iron and ironing board....not sure if they are in working order. Very basic.

Reviewed October 7, 2009

I stayed here 4 nights while attending a nearby event. The room was small, but quite clean. It included a microwave and mini-fridge. Good Internet service. Bathroom was tiny and the shower was dark. The baseboard heating worked well, which was important because it just had turned cold and I was feeling the sudden change. I've traveled extensively lately, and without a doubt this is the quietest place I've stayed--a big plus! Conveniently located near the center of town.
